Rust Never Sleeps is amazing, Harvest Moon is good too but not as good.

Neil's awesome. "Weld" is one of the best live albums I've heard.

'Tonight's the Night', one of the greatest albums ever. Dark, murky, drunken, sloppy and full of emotion and longing. "The input was tequlia and hamburgers" said Neil, the band would play pool and drink untill they could barely stand upright- then start recording. Bookended by the errie title track, the album is about friends he'd lost to drugs and fame, and the letdown of what stardom was really like. The lonelyness is haunting.
A classic eyeryone should own. Especially on lp.

just watched the 'heart of gold' performance on one of the movie channels yesterday, and i really enjoyed it. he is one of those artist that i dont listen to enough to recognize his voice in a song, but when i saw the performance i recognized every other song.

been a Neil fan for years and years and i'm only 22, his music is really accessible for people of all backgrounds i think. i hadn't thought alot about his influence on grunge but i now agree 100% that he could be considered the grandfather of grunge. i'd be interested to get some insight from bands like the buzz****s or green river about neil's influence on them. we all know that pearl jam wouldn't be where they are today with neil young, i think we can safely include other big ones like soundgarden or even alice in chains in that group? i wonder about what kurt cobain had to say, if anything, about neil?

some of my all-time favs: Cripple Creek Ferry, Natural Beauty, Out On The Weekend

Kurt must of had some appreciation of Neil's music because his 'Suicide' (Let's not open THAT can of worms here...) note contained lines from 'Hey Hey, My My' : "It's better to burn out, than it is to rust"
Rumour has it that Neil doesn't play that song anymore because of it. 'Sleeps with Angels' is supposed to be about Kurt.

i had no idea he sings "heart of gold" btw...
any thoughts/suggestions on other albums?
I don't know...I think On the Beach is a wicked album. It's so different from the first two you mention, and it's so experimental, but at the same time it all comes together really well.
Another reason I like it is probably because it isn't "really good americana."

Thrasher is one of the greatest songs I've ever heard.

I have heard that rumor as well, however he played it when I saw him and Crazy Horse live a few years ago (2003? 2004??)

appreciated.
No he wasnt in the Highwaymen, perhaps your getting confused with an 1985 country album (released in the same year as 'Highwayman')
he did (called 'Old Ways') with Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson & Waylon Jennings- all 3 of which were in The Highwaymen along with Johnny Cash.


The song 'Highwayman' is a fantastic song- good lyrics in:

I was a highwayman. Along the coach roads I did ride
With sword and pistol by my side
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade
The bastards hung me in the spring of twenty-five
But I am still alive.

Although it wasnt originally written by these guys (Jimmy Webb originally wrote it) they bring it to life and I like how they all sing a verse each; acting out the parts if you like.

I personally love Willie Nelson & Johnny Cash, I think Waylon Jennings has a bit of a dodgy voice though lol. Ive not heard any Kris Kristofferson yet but I like his voice from what Ive heard from the 'Highwayman' album.

Other good songs include: 'Desperados Waiting For A Train', 'Welfare Line', 'The Last Cowboy Song', 'Deportee (Plane Wreck At Los Gatos) (a Woody Guthrie cover)' & 'The Twentieth Century Is Almost Over'.
